It’s hard to believe that it’s already been five years since Shanghai Disney Resort opened its gates and now the resort is celebrating its 5th anniversary! In a special moment during the New Year’s Eve fireworks show – “Ignite the New Year” – the resort unveiled its official Fifth Anniversary logo!
The debut of the logo, which illuminated the world’s largest Disney castle, marks the start of the resort’s milestone Fifth Anniversary year, and hints at the many celebrations and surprises Disney is cooking up in celebration for the actual June 2021 milestone.
Other fun surprises during the special firework spectacle included Shanghai’s night sky lit up with the shape of a giant “2021.” Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse also wished everyone a ‘Happy New Year’ that promises to be full of surprises.
In regards to the upcoming anniversary celebration, Disney indicated:
The Fifth Anniversary logo features Shanghai Disneyland’s iconic Enchanted Storybook Castle silhouetted against a brightly colored number five, with added sparkles to bring depth, dimension and a sprinkle of Disney magic to the festivities. As a tradition at Disney parks and resorts, Shanghai Disney Resort’s Fifth Anniversary will immerse guests in an exciting yearlong celebration, with the logo appearing in a variety of forms across the resort, as well as alongside new characters and experiences.
Over the past five years, tens of millions of guests have made magical memories, been on wild adventures, and had their dreams come true at Shanghai Disney Resort. The Fifth Anniversary celebration will introduce guests to more surprises, treats, offerings and experiences than ever before, and guests will find enhancements at every turn, including an entirely new arrival experience that delivers a smoother, friendlier park entry even before the celebration officially starts.
